    I worked at Compass Group

    Pros

    Scratch cooking, No Late nights & Holidays were shared and early.

    Cons

    Hard working Under-paid Skelton crew, Old equipment in disrepair. Unskilled or under-skilled managers. Constant threats of firing if over budget on labor or food costs. Bottom line came above Seniors we served. If you tried to speak to corporate it's a run around. Getting anything approved is a nightmare. All that matter was getting apartments filled all else is second at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember service first. If you provide quality food and housing it will speak for itself. That will be the best marketing campaign you could very pay for. Visit and work. Yeah work with those who are in daily contact with the seniors who PAY your salaries. Looking at the bottom line of a P&L will never tell you anything about the future profitability. Actually, going into the trenches will. A general cannot lead form the comfort of his office.
    Corporate is always to busy or too lazy to figure out the problem. It's a get them in and get them paying. It's unfortunate that seniors pay all this money and corporate seems to think as long as the checks come in; they're doing their jobs.
